A seat for a lost classmate

: Laporte’s 11 graduates left room for classmate James David Stilwell, who died in 2008 in an ATV crash. His helmet and a rose were carried by Mathew Moss, seated next to the chair. Graduate Lillian Eastman decorated the back of her robe with a Batman logo, saying, “Today we’re all superheroes.” Valedictorian Brian Bass urged his classmates not to be ordinary.
